As part of World Mental Health Day, Catherine and I have recorded a special programme taking over the radio to talk about the importance of mental health – The Prince of Wales
This year “World Mental Health Day” is being celebrated under the slogan of “Make mental health and wellbeing for all a global priority” on October 10. The slogan was proposed by the World Federation for Mental Health and particularly targetting children, adolescents and youth. The Day provides an opportunity for all stakeholders working on mental health issues to talk about their work, and what more needs to be done to make mental health care a reality for people worldwide.
Mental Health is one of the primary focuses of The Royal couple’s public profile. The Royal Foundation of the Prince and Princesses of Wales works with many charities and organizations that are working hard on the ground to remove the stigma around Mental Health under the umbrella of Heads Together which was established by The Prince and Princesses in 2016. From BBC’s report,
During the discussion, the Prince and Princess spoke about stigmas around mental health, the pressures of social media and ways to equip young people with the tools to open up about how they’re feeling.
The prince said the couple wanted to “have a meaningful conversation about mental health“. Catherine added: “The first step for all of us is to keep having those conversations and keep reaching out for help.“
William added that they would talk about mental health toolboxes – providing people with coping skills and resources to alleviate anxiety and depression. “You could be living one life one minute and something massively changes and you realise you don’t necessarily have the tools or the experience to be able to tackle that,” he said.
The princess also told listeners that she would “love to know” how they look after their own mental health, which was followed by a guest then explaining to the royal couple his approach.”There’s no right or wrong, that’s the thing as well. Different things will work for different people,” she said.”
